EUR/USD

EUR/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Despite the dismal data prints coming out of the euro-area, EUR/USD may continue to hold near-term support around the 1.1300 handle as Greece moves towards a bailout extension.
  • Limited risk for a euro-area breakup may generate a relief rally in EUR/USD, but will retain a bearish outlook as long as Relative Strength Index (RSI) preserves the bearish trend from back in 2013.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-short EUR/USD, but looks as though FX traders are scaling back their bearish bets on the euro-dollar as the ratio continues to narrow, with the figure currently standing at -1.15.

GBP/USD

GBP/USD Daily Chart
  • Despite the failure to retain the bullish RSI momentum, GBP/USD may face a larger advance going into March as it continue to hold above former resistance around 1.5300 (23.6% retracement) to 1.5320 (78.6% retracement).
  • With the Bank of England (BoE) scheduled to testify on its Inflation report on February 24, may see the fresh batch of central bank rhetoric heighten the appeal of the sterling should Governor Mark Carney continue to prepare U.K. households and businesses for higher borrowing-costs.
  • Next topside region of interest comes in around 1.5500-15, the former support region.
